Summary: Have had pretty good luck with this card for about a year and a half now. Had one melt down but was quickly replaced by Zotac's support. What I don't understand is why its almost 30 dollars more than when I bought in almost two years ago. Was hoping to find it cheaper to see if I could do an SLI set up with it...
Summary: Bought this card in Jan of 2012, and it worked well for 8 months. Just a few days ago, in September of 2012, one of the DVI outputs started to fail. It would work for a while, then it wouldn't. Now it doesn't work at all. I had noticed that the card ran a little hotter than I would have liked when under load, max 160 degrees F, but according to what I read, it was within normal range.
Summary: I can understand the people that does not like spend money and at the same time, wants power, if you like and GPU that meets all of these, you should buy this awesome Graphic Card, have all or requeriments that have you be satisfied.
Summary: I bought this video card for $150. It installed easily and looks great. The card is well built and strong so it is near impossible to damage it during installation.The colors and design make it look like a real machine unlike some other card companys that just strap on a fan to a card and call it a 550 ti. The cooling system is great and the card stays cool. It can max out all my games like assasins creed BH, dirt 3, Battlefield 3 and much more.
Summary: The card is fine, does the job but... -Automatic fan speed is not enough to keep the card cool at 100% load, It will reach 80C in no time while playing and it's going to reset itself every time gets close to that temp, and the Firestorm (Zotac's program to overclock and control fan speed)s#$%#!
Summary: Although this item was too big for my case... Gateway LX6810, after bending off the two prongs I got it to fit perfectly. As far as performance, this thing is great! It has trouble running games in FULL HD resolution though, anything below that is great. This card blows my GT120 out of the water, all my games at the highest detail, while getting 40-60fps. LIKE I SAID, NOT FOR HD GAMING. But anything below that this card works wonders.
Summary: ZOTAC has made it a nice graphic video card or standard gtx 550 TI AMP edition ZOTAC graphics card is doing excellent video for less demanding gamer if you can get an SLI gtx 550 and you can play your video games with an excellent 60 fps MSI Cyclone is an excellent product you have to consider a good power supply!
Summary: I purchased this video card last week for about $120, and I have to say this is a great video card for the money. This card plays every game in 1900x1200 with all the bells and whisles turned on. I thought I needed 2 of these cards in SLI to play PC games in high resolution, but I was wrong, this card rocks all my games with ease, unreal. You dont need a 560, 570, or 580 card, this card does it all with ease, paired up with my AMD 6 Core CPU and 12gigs of DDR3 memory.
Summary: Hi! I can not say much of this Card since it was DOA, fan would not work and HDMI was dead so I had to return it. I bought instead an AMD Radeaon hd6850 wich I'm pretty happy with...At least the return process and the customer service from amazon was GREAT!
